    NSTAR 2 ( 23781 ) is drifting across the sky. Looks like it was retired, as it lasted it's planned
    10 years.
    
    Something appears to be seriously wrong, with the orbital data for it.
    
    It was parked at 136 degrees East, yet if you take at the look at the spacetrack tle data on
    different days, it shows it at different orbital slots!
